Ford Mustang 1994-1998 Repair Guide

Jacking Precautions


The following safety points cannot be overemphasized:

Always block the opposite wheel (or wheels) to keep the vehicle from rolling off the jack.
When raising the front of the vehicle, firmly apply the parking brake.
DON'T run the engine while the vehicle is on jackstands, ESPECIALLY if one or more drive wheels are remaining on the ground.
When the drive wheels are to remain on the ground, leave the vehicle in gear to help prevent it from rolling.
Always use jackstands to support the vehicle when you are working underneath. Place the stands beneath the vehicle's jacking brackets. Before climbing underneath, rock the vehicle a bit to make sure it is firmly supported.
